Glendalough, Co. Wicklow
2012-04-25 11:49:00
It was one of those days where the rain was on and off. After a very nice meal in the Lynhams of Laragh hotel, umbrellas in hand, we took a long walk through the beautiful Wicklow Mountains National Park in Glendalough. The sun was shining for the majority of the time making for beautiful views ...

Titanic tourism: what it is and what it should be
2012-04-16 16:11:00
Claiming to be disinterested in the hype surrounding the Titanic does a good job of both alienating people from those who feel creating such business models of a disaster are a good way to remember those whose lives were lost, and an history industry, and bringing together those who are fed up seeing it on ...

The Real Meaning of Easter Today; Family
2012-04-10 16:02:00
When I was young I would get annoyed if I have at least 8 Easter Eggs. I feel horrible for being that way. I wasn’t the most pleasant of children at such events: the religious events in the year. Scoffing at presents from family, wanting a bigger Easter Egg, better selection box, more toys, more ...

Titanic Super Special Stage
2012-04-07 02:40:00
What a silly name: Titanic Super Special Stage. Alas, it is the name given to the event which took place yesterday as part of the Circuit of Ireland Rally. Loud, fast and adrenaline fuelled it was a brilliant event to watch against the perfect backdrop of the Harland and Wolff cranes. One of a number ...

It isn’t the first time in the last few months that I’ve left my phone behind. It also isn’t the first time technology helped me retrieve it. Back in January I left my phone in a taxi. I called Darren on Skype and he called my phone and requested that he return my phone to ...

2012-03-22 12:12:00
After making our way through the parade, we made the most of the beautiful weather and walked along the Quay towards the Guinness Storehouse. This would be my second visit to the Storehouse, the first was in 2009 courtesy of a and a small group of photobloggers. Darren and I decided to take in ...

St Patrick?s Day ? Part 2: The Parade
2012-03-20 15:30:00
After church we attempted to cross the parade. This proved impossible. The first, and indeed last time, I saw the St Patrick ’s Day parade in Dublin was in 2009. I wasn’t sure what to expect, indeed it was much stranger than I could have imagined. However, as official reports have stated, 500,000 people lined the ...

St Patrick?s Day 2012 ? Part 1: Pro Cathedral
2012-03-20 15:00:00
Remember the lovely story of how St Patrick was captured in Britain by Irish pirates and taken as a slave to Ireland? As the priest said during his sermon that this was a good thing, of course. After all, if he wasn’t captured, he would not have brought Christianity to Ireland. He also wore blue, ...

Tumblr Meetup March 2012
2012-03-11 14:43:00
So there’s this thing called Tumblr, essentially it’s the Myspace of today: filled with teenagers. God-awful page designs (flashing tiled gifs, autoplaying dubstep), self-indulgent rants and self-centred longwinded diatribes of teenage nonsense) and reblogging the hell out of images with everything: helvetica over images of space and text over nebulas, photos of fashion, text over ...

On Why I Support International Women?s Day
2012-03-09 00:48:00
Having spent a good portion of my day reading about the issues that women face today and wondering what I should do to mark the occasion, I had a hard time narrowing it down. Should I make a list of brilliant women in the world today, or in history? Photographers, politicians, movie stars, musicians, activists, ...

That Was 2011
2012-01-05 23:31:00
This year my usual series of end-of-year posts have been postponed due to extended New Year’s celebrations. A somewhat different format to last year, though much the same sentiment remains, as well as one person who’s photograph appeared last year being much more prominent twelve months later. No matter, let’s get going. In all, it’s ...

Christmas is a strange time of year. Church on Sunday For the most part I love Christmas. For me it it’s about few days to chill-out with family; eat lots of chocolate, have a few drinks, hang out with my awesome cousins, a nice meal (stuffing!), refuse to wear paper hats, argue with my parents ...

Stamp of Approval

Part of the beauty of social networking for me has always been personal recommendations; I could care less what the guy who writes for the local paper thinks of the latest blockbuster, instead I look for thoughts of those I know through a variety of online platforms. Rather than ask 20 friends what they think ...

Why The MTV EMAs Made Me Angry
2011-11-10 09:29:00
Celebrity culture: it’s everywhere and it’s very difficult to escape. I realise I sound like my Grandparents, though worse perhaps than my own Grandparents as they don’t understand just how bad celebrity culture is today. And how much it bothers me. I have many issues surrounding idolising those in the spotlight, those with their 15mins ...

Found Typography in Paris

Paris is an undeniably historic artistic city, and so while there, I captured some of this, through some old type to modern type. I’ve become a little bit of a type-geek.

Gay Paree Part 1

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; Paris is dirty and polluted, vulgar, unscrupulous, exploitative and offensive, but I still love it. It’s appealing in so many ways; the stunning architecture, the beautiful people, delicious food, boulangeries, the metro (it has rubber wheels!), fashion, art, bars, nightlife, history… I’ve been a few times now, ...

Pointe du Raz; Far West

Pointe du Raz is an area of rocky terrain at the most western point of France ? an amateur rock-climber’s dream. It offers a brilliantly dramatic view, and exciting hike across the jagged hostile landscape while watching the water crash on the rocks below. Oh the way back from the rock(s), we stopped at Baie des ...

I Will Be a Writer.

There are many things I enjoy the idea of doing often more than actually doing them. Writing is one of them, in a way. I like the idea of writing thought-provoking essays, opinion pieces, and wordy pseudo-intellectual studies that make everyone take a second to think about the state of the world today. Alas, it’s ...
